I bought me a new camera for the trip and i saw something interesting while ordering and ordered myself a gorillapod. Gorillapod is a slick little tripod with a twist. It's able to grab a hold of pretty much anything that is small enough.
What is quite nice is that gorillapod is rather small in size, so it's easy to carry it around. It fits quite nicely in your pocket. I've tried it in a few places already and I like it.
And no, that's not the new camera. I might post more about it too later on.
